Spring Visitor

Bradford Pear

I wasn’t sure if the Bradford Pear tree that suffered so much damage during last winter’s freak October snow storm would rebound from its injuries. It turns out, I needn’t have worried. This spring the tree had abundant flowers, even the one huge limb that’s barely still attached and needs to be trimmed off at some point this year.

With the setting sun giving the blooms a beautiful soft glow, I enjoyed shooting some macro images one evening. Just as I was hitting the shutter, an insect alighted on the very flower I was focused on, providing me with two images before it quickly zoomed off to continue foraging for food. Even though I really enjoy the spring flowers and change of season, it was a reminder that with warmer temperatures come our little insect visitors who most of the time, at least for me, aren’t nearly as enjoyable.
